CBS News Anchor Katie Couric denounced what she perceives as anti-Muslim bigotry in this country and suggested a Muslim version of "The Cosby Show" to counteract it. This new show, in Couric's mind, could enhance the image of Muslim-Americans much as the "Cosby Show" did for African-Americans.
Apparently, the trigger for Couric was the intense opposition to the building of the $100 million, 15 story Islamic mega mosque and community center complex so near Ground Zero. Frankly, however, I don't think that any mushy, feel-good TV sitcom featuring Muslims will help the survivors of 9/11 or the families and friends of those who perished that day get over what happened that day. I don't think it will make them stop believing it is just a wee bit insensitive to build anIslamic tower so close to the World Trade Center Towers where nearly 3000 innocent people were slaughtered by radical Muslims.
